About the Menu -
Like Japan, Peru has a millennia-old history. They are two great, ancient civilizations with two major culinary traditions. These traditions complemented one another, and neither of the two sides absorbed the other to the point where one disappeared. SusherÍa menu is the result of this great union and the experience/vision of Mauricio Fraga-Rosenfeld and his dedicated culinary team lead by Peruvian Executive Chef Javier Angeles-Beron.
About the experience -
Susheria is a unique casual-glam restaurant concept where you will enjoy Izakaya, a Japanese style of service. The Japanese version of tapas, dishes will be served when ready. Izayaka is a perfect moment to enjoy life, laughter and great conversations while sharing food and drinks.
I was very disappointed with the food, the rolls we got were overpriced for the value. The drinks were great.
The food is so delicious and fresh and there is always excellent service!
Awful service. Less than average food. Tried one of the seasonal rolls that had “mahi tempura” in it- I wouldn’t feed this to my dog, so nasty.
Great location but the service needs to be worked on. 12 minutes after sitting in the bar area is to actually get a menu... is unacceptable! Drinks are great and so if food selection but inconsistent. Vibe is nice but I think they should enforce a bit the dress code. Flip flops and beach shorts should be a NO!
Fantastic food. Really high quality fresh raw seafood
Great location, just one block from water and one block from shopping. Comfortable chairs. Corner spot with lots of windows allows for some people watching. Decor was nice. Service great. Ordered a variation of rolls not on the menu and they accommodated without an issue. Delicious food with Japanese and Peruvian flare. Only downside was a little pricey but very comparable to the local places. Highly recommend.
Only giving this place a 3 based on their cocktails and ambience however the food was average and it was overly expensive. Sushi rock in Arlington is about half the price and the food is 1000 times better.
Fantastic food and great to try adventurous Peruvisushi combinations!
food was good; service was inconsistent. waiters would come by and take your order and then another would come by and ask if we had any questions. They could use some more wait staff.
We went to Susheria for lunch. The server was very hospitable, and checked on us a few times during our lunch. We ordered the Spicy Tuna, California, and the Salmon Maki Rolls. The Maki Rolls come in quantities of 8 each. We also got the Miso Soup and a Rice Bowl (Aji de Guillina? We don’t remember the name exactly. We remember it consisted of potatoes and chicken breast though).
Spicy Tuna: The more you eat it, the saltier it tastes. It is not that spicy, so it would be fine for those who are not good at eating spicy things. Rating: 5/10
California: The avocado balanced the other ingredients very well, and is delicious and savory. Rating: 8/10
Salmon: The avocado also created a great balance with the slightly salty salmon, creating an overall great taste. I would recommend this if you visit. Rating: 9/10
Miso Soup: This soup does not taste much like the original Japanese style, as it is excessively salty to the point that it is unsavory. I do not recommend this. Rating: 3/10
Aji de Guillina: Rice with various toppings such as small cube-shaped roasted potatoes and strands of chicken breast. This was an okay dish, but did not have any wow factor whatsoever. I wouldn’t recommend this dish in particular, as it is approximately $15 and comes in a small quantity. Rating: 5/10
Met friends there recently in the early evening, and was pleased to learn they had a happy hour deals until 7p. We had to sit at the bar (not a problem) and proceeded to order drinks and a few sushi items. Japanese beers on draft were cold and refreshing, and cocktails were well crafted and moderately strong. Sushi was very fresh-tasting and delicious. A buddy ordered a fancier Japanese-Peruvian fusion dish off the main menu, and was very satisfied with it. The place was less than half-occupied so sound level was low and ambience was a bit muted, but we left by 8p, so I'm guessing things got livelier thereafter. Will definitely go back to sample the full menu as well as other cocktails.
This was a fun experience - cool ambience and lovely staff!
Server was not very personable and didn’t talk to us about the menu and exciting items. Rarely saw her as well even though it wasn’t that busy. Food was good as always
Loved, loved, loved the ambiance and happy hour menu. Appetizer (rice squares with spicy tuna) was also great. The place wasn’t busy on a Monday night but we saw lots of people on Friday night. Happy hour runs till 7- only in the bar area, but there were long high tops available. Only complaint was it was difficult to reach the restaurant by phone. Using Open Table worked well to secure a reservation. (However- we didn’t use the reservation since we wanted to dine off the happy hour pricing.). Favorite was the avocado, cucumber and asparagus roll.
I met up with some friends for the sushi happy hour, excellent rolls though I don't know if it'd be worth the full price. Definitely a great HH spot!
Great restaurant and food. We were late but they honored our reservation!
Outstanding food, really interesting menu (Peruvian/Japanese fusion). Great drinks, fun ambience.
Enjoyed the food and the ambience. Service was great.
Great food. A new concept in Georgetown.
Service was good, but the food was pretty mediocre.
Loved susheria! A little pricey but very tasty! Great atmosphere as well.
One of the best sushi places around
The environment was very modern and hip. The staff was friendly and welcoming, as it was our first time. And the food was great; from drinks, to the sushi, to dessert! We will definitely be returning.
Absolutely amazing as always. Best sushi in the DV area!
Great ambiance - delicious food and drinks. Loved the spicy jo jo (I think that is what it was called). Seemed a little pricey for what we got, paid $140 for two people (but we did have two cocktails each). Would go back for sure!
Food was clean and a bit small for prices but the flavors were great. Service was very good.
Did not have the wine that was in the list but they were accommodating.
Absolutely best meal I’ve had in Georgetown—ever!! Perfect service by Natia and great atmosphere. Best spicy cocktails. Ask for an array of sauces.
The food and the drinks were really good. I highly recommend the spicy jo-jo! The ambiance is nice too.
Great high grade sushi. The layout of the restaurant, though it had a modern hip layout, can potentially be a bit cramped for individual, pairs or small parties. Loved the service, and the bar is long and illuminated very well.
We were the only people there for a pre movie dinner, yet the apps and the main all hit the table at once
Everything was great!
Service, ambience, and food all was on point. They did a really nice job creating fusion dishes that didn’t seem pretentious nor disappointing. Interior decor is upscale but the vibe is real casual which was a plus. It was a great way to get introduced to Peruvian flavors without feeling overwhelmed. Loved it!
Noise was a little loud, but everything else was fine!
Fantastic food, very knowledgeable wait staff
It’s like Mate got a facelift. The food was good but nothing special for the price.
It was very good. I loved the atmosphere, as I was taking my girlfriend for her birthday, and I loved it:
Nice Peruvian/Japanese fusion food. I would definitely recommend the place to anyone.
The food wasn't good. The main dish arrived first, then the entrees and then my friend's second dish last. The chocolate volcano wasn't hot.
Ambience is really cool. I appreciate the chairs in the restaurant a lot which is a weird thing to like. The lighting is awesome and music level is perfect. It’s loud enough to drown out other conversations but still a great level to hear the people you are with.
The cocktail I had was awesome, the spicy JOJO. Tasted great and had a great level of heat.
Had miso soup which was great, the traditional ceviche which was very good. The spicy tuna roll was great, hard to find good sushi in DC. And lastly I enjoyed the steak medium rare. It was over cooked a little bit but still enjoyable with all the flavor in the chimichurri sauce.
The staff was very pleasant and I look forward to going back again soon!
